leading the coverage. good to see you. martha has more on this. martha: we saw kathleen sebelius the other day. nobody seems to be answering the question how many people successfully signed up for obamacare. we're getting new numbers how many people are getting notices they're petting boot from the policies they have now. look at some of these. in california it is up to 900,000 people who have lost their insurance. in georgia, 400,000. oregon, 150,000 have received those letters in the mail that are very disturbing. look at the map. from coast to coast all told numbers add up to 2 million americans now out of luck. they no longer have their current policy despite the promise, you know what, if you like your plan, like your doctor, none of that is going to change. the reality is turning out to be quite different. stuart varney joins me, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, really there is a ripple effect of this in the economy already, right? >> in my opinion obamacare is far worse for the economy than the shutdown. the economy is already slowing down, president o
this afternoon when three house republicans slammed health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for blaming problems with the rollout on the government shutdown. but the latest issue with the website wasn't political at all. it was another big technical problem over the weekend that only got fixed today. is it working or not? 27 days after it was supposed to be open for business, the healthcare.gov website crashed again over the weekend. it was up and running again on monday. the administration blames this latest problem on one of the 56 contractors for the project, a subsidiary of verizon called terremark which was responsible for website capacity issues. >> the healthcare.gov technical team continued troubleshooting the issue with the online creation account process. >> reporter: meanwhile, the administration had other pressing problems. a triple threat on capitol hill. republican chairman darrell issa and his house reform and oversight committee wanted a slew of documents related to obama care and the rollout by 5:00 p.m. today. that deadline came and went, but issa has more

and human services secretary kathleen sebelius say the president didn't know anything about the website problems? and why were the warnings ignored? what are you learning about this report? about what they knew? >> the main contractor, the key contractor issued this confidential report to the agency overseeing the health care.gov rollout. it warnld of a number of open risks and issues for the health care.gov webb. the report gave the highest priority to things in plain language like we don't have access to monitoring tools, not enough time to schedule or conduct adequate performance testing and hub services are enter mittenly unavailable. short for the sights not sim. they were saying back in september they were putting a team in place to alert whenever the hub go down. >> now, obviously the question is, did people in the white house know the significance of that? but what is the administration saying? kathleen sebelius has been so adamant that the president didn't know anything. what does this mean about that and why were the warnings ignored? >> they did issue a very brief, almost ter
